For the first five years, the Collector magazine was published in a 64-page, quarterly format. However, significant increases in costs, postage and GST saw it as a 130-plus page annual with four smaller bulletins in 2001. The larger annual presents a thread-sewn, square-back binding with more colour and comprehensive articles.
